Video from the crash scene shows a crashed tractor trailer on the roadside surrounded by emergency vehicles.

"The UF Health emergency response mass casualty plan was activated today at approximately 1:15 p.m. due to a multivehicle accident on Interstate 75 in south Alachua County".

One person was injured in a two-vehicle crash in south Charlotte Friday afternoon.

According to FHP, the driver of a 2007 Chevy Corvette, 25-year-old Jarrett Joseph Tereskun of Fruitland Park, was killed in the crash.

The tractor-trailer overturned when the driver lost control and hit a guardrail after a tire blew out, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Four other passengers were also seriously injured.

I-75 southbound was closed for several hours but has since been reopened.

Driver inattention is being investigated as a contributing factor in the crash.
